of the united states. >> joining me from washington. cnn senior white house correspondent jim acosta and dana bash and barbara starr. da dana i'm going to start with you. how much do you think pressure had on the president's decision? what has it pure politics here too? >> there's no question it was a significant factor, not the only factor. it's impossible to say that because there's so many weighing on the president's decision. not the least of which what is happening on the international level but my understanding in talking to several senators who are on phone calls and briefings over the past few days with top obama officials is that the pressure really was mounting. not just from republicans and not just from aennti-war libera democrats from saying you have to come to congress. if this is not something that's dire and if it were, the strikes would have happened 24, 48 hours ago, you have to come to congress and get authority from us. that absolutely was a factor. the question is whether or not the president is going to regret this decision because if he doesn't get the votes in the hous
. "state of the union" with candy crowley begins right now. >>> i'm dana bash in for candy crowley with breaking news we're following out of syria. a u.s. official tells cnn there's very little doubt that the assad government used chemical weapons against civilians. syria's government today said it will allow u.n. weapons inspectors to investigate the site where the alleged attack occurred on wednesday. the syrian government denies responsibility and is blaming rebels for the attack that reportedly killed 1300 people. now the incident is testing already-frayed relations between the united states and russia, which is warning the u.s. not to jump to conclusions about the syrian government. meanwhile, the pentagon has prepositioned four warships armed with cruise missiles in the region. joining me now is cnn's pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence, and cnn international correspondent, phil black live in moscow and cnn's fred platkin in damascus. fred, to you first. >> hi, dana. i had an interview earlier today with the deputy foreign minister of syria, who told me that the u.n. weapo
. >> allegedly, posedly, i'm sure it was true. >> joining us michael eric dyson, and dana milbank, michael, you've got a dream that joe walsh pays his child support, but on a completely bill o'reilly said that george w. bush wasn't invited, in fact he was invited, as was his fare, as was speaker john boehner, as well as eric cantor. so what gives here? >> the fact that the other shoe has dropped, and we know the real deal, let's see if they're equally aggressive about the as is of these noteworthy republicans. the fact is the civil rights movement at its broadest was a nonpartisan affair. martin luther king jr. and the other leaders of that particular march were invested in the radical transformation of america according to principles of democracy. if you were a supporter, whether libertarian, whether you were republican or democratic, then you could participate freely. the point is these republicans units that they are antitheyically opposed to every moment and gesture of black freedom that was articulated yesterday, and more broadly about progressive realization of rights for gale and lesbian
to be talking to dana bash our chief congressional correspondent who knows everything about congress. we'll ask her about all of this and it possible that congress may be called back from vacation? is it worth it? we'll pose those questions to dana bash. also coming up at 10:00 a.m. eastern, michael crowley from "time" magazine will talk about president obama and his changing stance on waging war or taking military action. should be very interesting. we'll be right back. when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals: help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do. we've added cutting-edge technology, like a new deepwater well cap and a state-of-the-art monitoring center, where experts watch over all drilling activity twenty-four-seven. and we're sharing what we've learned, so we can all produce energy more safely. our commitment has never been stronger.

family and music fans were setting twitter on fire. dana is here with us. nice to see you. >> thanks, greta, for having me back. >> and let me -- >> wow. >> let me guess, you loved it, right? >> you know, yeah, i guess if you like a nightmare that involves teddy ruxpin and vera de milo's character from the 1990s, if you throw all those things together, it was wonderful. i've never seen anything like that. greta, there's two things that miley needs. everyone in america can agree on, jesus and skwut -- squats. >> i guess i didn't follow her career very much. i just thought, well, this looks like hollywood. this is the kind of junk we're seeing. if you have a history with her and watched her grow up, you're more scandalized than the rest of us, you know, this is never going to clean up at this point. >> well, yeah, and the thing with this, greta, is i don't -- you don't have to be shocking for the sake of shock in order to be artistic. it seems a lot of entertainment thinks vulgarity is somehow a substitute for skill or talent and it's not. during the same evening we saw amazing perform
as worshippers were leaving mosques. al-jazeera dana zudar has more. >> they finished friday prayers. then panic struck. security cameras caught the explosion. two one of two mosques. theplosions were minutes apart. dozens of people were killed and injured. there was no claim of responsibility, but officials say the attacks had one objective: to create sectarian strife in lebanon. tripoli is predominantly sunni and many people are supporters of the opposition. >> this is the work of the syrian government. they targeted us. they gave a message to the sunnis in the north. but we won't be threatened. we will retaliate. >> it is a dangerous time for lebanon. these bombings are seen as an attack against sunnis. last week, a powerful explosion killed civilians and has a strong hold in beirut. s hezbollah is fighting. this is a country polarized by the syrian war. and tripoli is a volatile city. those opposing have engaged in gun battles many times in the past. it is a time of heightened tensions. the blasts were not unexpected. a few days ago, the lebanese army stepped up security across the country.
be, are not up for debate. cnn's dana bash, our chief congressional correspondent, joins me now. when you look at history, dana, it shows that presidents -- just a reminder. u i any you know this. presidents can launch military action without approval from congress. grenada, '83. pan na, '89. iraq, '91. haiti, '94. kosovo, '99. why a briefing in a couple of hours, dana bash? >> reporter: in short, politics. members of congress, even natural allies of president obama have been demanding coordination. tonight 6:00 p.m. this evening secretaries of state and defense and others will hold a conference call with president obama and other key committee heads to discuss the nation's posture on syria. what's interesting is that lawmakers are not here. they are still back in their states, in their districts on congressional recess. since they're all over the country, some will be on their cell phones. it is not going to be a secure line. meaning it can't be classified. it's going to be an unclassified conversation. one source who's going to be on the call who i talked to kind of rolled his eyes
targets in syria. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is joining us on the phone. i've got through this letter. i know you have as well. he's raising all sorts of questions, this speaker. >> reporter: all sorts of questions, very specific questions about not just what kind of military action might the administration use, but more specifically what kind of information would they be basing this on, with regard to chemical weapons. what's very interesting about this letter is a couple things, first of all, the speaker make pretty clear that he agrees with the administration that syria is a very important area in national securitywise, and that he supports being aggressive with regard to potential for chemical weapons. he also says this -- i respectfully request that you as the country's commander in chief personally make the indication to the american people and congress for how potential military action will security american national security, and he goes on to say preserve america's credibility and deter the future use of chemical weapons. what he's trying to do here is kin
. jim acosta is covering events for us at the white house while dana bash is in our washington bureau. and, jim, the timing of this decision simply fascinating and based on what you're hearing, really last minute. >> very much so, john. this was a very dramatic development that took place here at the white house yesterday after his administration was essentially moving in the direction of eminent military action, perhaps as soon as this weekend. the president made a different decision. at 7:00 last night he really made a last-minute decision to slow down, buy himself some time, and seek authorization from congress. according to senior administration officials who explained how all of this played out to a group of reporters, within the last hour, it sort of takes a little bit of time to explain but it's worth listening to. at first the story first starts, according to the senior administration officials, that this option of seeking directional approval was not really talked about among his top advisers. it was something just just really kicking around inside the president's head, accor
on the complex political situation facing the president, i want to bring in dana milbank, political columnist for the "washington post." you just heard andrea mitchell talk about the fact you have this president who came into office, elected in large part getting that democratic nomination because of his caution, but this thing is moving, this train's going in one direction, and that's toward military action. >> that's right. he opposed iraq as a dumb war, but by his own terms, he's left himself absolutely no choice here because he said famously that this was the red line. the use of chemical weapons and if there had been any doubt before, his administration has erased that today. it has to be a very serious response, and as andrea was discussing, the only real question is whether it is this surge cal strike or a more intensive air campaign against the syrian regime. nobody's talking about anything beyond air power at this point. the only certainty we have is that whatever this president does, he's going to be criticized for it for doing too much for doing too little, for going with the unite
congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, you have new information, as well. >> we've been talking about the fact that senators mccain, john mccain and lindsey graham released a statement, pretty hard-hitting statement, saying that they're very concerned about action being limited, as barbara was just talking about. i just got off the phone with senator graham to try to clarify if this means that he would actually vote against authorization if it would just authorize limited military force. what he told me is that they would only get his vote if, never mind how the authorization resolution was written, but if they -- in addition to that, gave him and other members of congress very clear timeline, explanation of what they blplano do afterwards, he and senator mccain has been focused on trying to train and harm rebels who are trustworthy in that area. he wants to have very clear information about that and if he doesn't, it will be hard for him to vote yes. why is this important? because he and mccain have been perhaps the most aggressive ong saying there needs to be action. he told me in a
to cover every angel of it beginning with dana >>> top obama officials insisted to lawmakers on the thursday night conference call they have no doubt ba sar assad's regime in syria was behind deadly chemical attacks there. secretaries of state, defense and others backed that up by revealing to lawmakers that the u.s. intercepted communications from a high level syrian official, which clearly indicates they were responsible for these weapons, that according to congressman el yol engel who participated in the call. though obama insists no decisions have been made, cnn is also told they privately made clear to lawmakers that chemical weapons in syria is such a threat the u.s. could engage with or without support from great britain. bob corker emerged from briefings thursday announcing support for surgical proportional military strikes, given the evidence of continued use of chemical warfare. bob menendez reaffirmed his support saying a decisive and consequential u.s. response is justified and warranted. . others argued the president still has to come before congress and the amer
. this came during a meeting with a delegation of syrian expatriates. dana bash is joining us on the phone. we know there have been some conference calls between the white house and republicans and democrats. what are you hearing? >> that's right. they're going to take place our understanding is in a couple hours with at least on the senate side with republicans and democrats, but we also just learned that tomorrow, that's sunday, the white house is offering or at least administration officials are offering to come to capitol hill on a sunday to offer a classified briefing on the intelligence that the u.s. has on syria's chemical weapons to any and all members who are in town. sunday is labor day weekend. unclear how many will be able to make it in but it's significant for several reasons. one is that members of congress have been real chomping at the bit to get, understandably, to get information in a classified way that makes them feel comfortable that any kind of military strikes would be justified, but also this is just tea leaf reading here, it might be questionable whether or not they wo
>>> welcome to "red eye." i'm dana filling in for greg gutfeld. that little monster will be back tomorrow. now to tv's andy levy for our pre game report. andy, what do you have for tonight's show? >> our top story, bradley manning is sentenced to 35 years in prison for leaking hundreds of thousands of documents. and our panel will update golly locks and the three bears and decide if the panel was too harsh, to soft or just right. and sentenced to 2350*eu6 years of not being allowed to use social media. and a high school spirit shows double stuffed oreos are not double stuffed. welcom
angle? >> not right now, dana, wait until the show is over. just can't wait. anyway, that is it for "the five." thank you for joining us, see you tomorrow. special report, you know what that is. that is pretty good. >> the terror on the ground, in the aftermath of alleged chemical weapons warfare in syria, we talked to people who were there. this is special report. good evening, i'm brett baier, the international outrage is growing tonight over the alleged use of chemical weapons in syria. france is suggesting the use of force. turkey said several red lines have been crossed. here in the u.s., the reaction has been less public and far less definitive. more on that in a moment. tonight, we begin with the eyewitness accounts of chemical weapons. here is a strong warning. many of the images in this report are very graphic and disturbing. >> reporter: for those who survived wednesday's attack comes the grim task of burying the dead. hundreds, if not thousands of dead. their bodies lined up, filling room after room. images somebody had to risk his life to capture, to show
's begin, though, with your chief congressional correspondent, dana bash. she has details of the syria conference call with members of conference -- members of congress going on right now. da dana, what do we know? >> we know that it has begun and this is good news for lawmakers, who have been really asking the obama administration for more information, was we have pretty heavy hitters, the secretaries of defense and state, as you said. other officials, talking to congressional leaders and key committee heads of both parties. that's the good news for them. the bad news for these lawmakers is that obama officials are going to be limited in what they can say, because they're going to be talking, or are as we speak, on a phone line that is not secure. so what that means is that they're going to be able to discuss only unclassified information. and that could rule out what many of these lawmakers really want to know. what the intelligence the administration has the to back claims about assad using chemical weapons, not to mention military options for strikes against the syrian regime. that
at the dana-farber cancer institute where we can identify the patients who are, have a 50% chance of dying within the next six months and a few key, literally just some questions, 7 questions that should be asked of someone who is nearing death, that can make a huge difference. >> rose: like what? >> like dow understand what the status of your health s what your prognosis is. what are your biggest fears if your health worsens. what are your goals if time beings short? what are you willing to sacrifice, in time now, for the sake of time now. and the answers you get-- . >> rose: sacrifice time now for time later meaning. >> what are you willing to sacrifice, you know, medicine, what we give you will sacrifice l put new the hospital, sacrifice things that are important to you now what are you willing to sacrifice, what are you not willing to sacrifice now. and those answers, first of all they give a doctor and a team some guidance on what to offer. >> rose: a snapshot of the person's present. >> but even more it makes the person think and actually change their care. they become much more like
, again the only television reporter currently there. we are lucky to have him there. >>> dana bash reporters that the intelligence report on sir yaw was delivered to key members of congress yet. we are still waiting for a public release, so the question is how close is the u.s. at taking military action in syria, and how will syrian presidnt assad respond. let's bring in andrew tabler, an expert on syria and the assad family, a senior fellow at the washington institute. in new york, chris tore harmer, the senior naval analyst at the institution for the study of war. he thorred a study last might that surgical strikes could de -- at a relatively small cost, but says using the air strikes is counterproductive. chris, i want to start with you. i want to read a quote from "los angeles times" today. one u.s. official who as briefed on the options on syria said he bled the white house would seek a level of intense legitimate just muscular numb not to be mocked, but not so devastating -- you're looking at what is just enough to mean something, just enough to be more than sim bo bowlic, he
the president, but i want to bring in dana bash right now. there's a series of briefings being laid out by the administration. declassified briefings over the phone. and classified briefings tomorrow for those members who are in washington. say most members are back in their districts or traveling or some place else during this labor day weekend, congress is not in session. do we anticipate many members coming back to washington tomorrow to have access to that classified information? >> i believe that that is entirely possible, but before we talk about the briefings, i wanted to give you a little bit of news and that is you know, we've seen a series of statements from members of congress on their view on what the president should and shouldn't do. we wrus got a statement from senator john cornyn, republican of texas, the number two republican in the united states senate who is now calling on the president to bring congress back into session and ask for a vote on authorization to use force before any military action is taken in syria. now, we've seen calls like this from many members of
to washington to our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash for more on what members of congress -- i know it's quiet in some parts of washington because many members of congress are still away on recess. we know that they were briefed via teleconference in that unsecure line so it wasn't classified, per se, last night. they've been speaking, i'm sure, with the administration today. what are you hearing? >> reporter: that's exactly right. i think a lot of what is going on as we speak is box checking by the administration. making sure that they speak to the key committees. last night what happened was secretary kerry, hagel and others spoke to the chair apd ranking members as well as the leadership in both bodies of congress. right now maybe even as we speak, there is a series of calls going from the national security council to the actual rank and file members of some of those key committees. so they are effectively, for lack of a better way to say, giving them a little love which members of congress always want from any administration, but especially as we've heard very loudly from some o
analyst gloria borger and chief congressional correspondent dana bash. the president hasn't made a final decision but everyone knows he has decided he is going to go ahead and launch some sort of strike against targets in syria. >> at this point it's not if but when. i think when you hear the president speak that way, it's clear he's got a lot of options on the table and maybe he was still deciding about a particular option, but i think you would have to assume given the fact that what we saw today was pretty much of a roll-out, first from the secretary and then the president himself. there was a background briefing for journalists with senior administration officials talking about the evidence on chemical weapons. they're clearly making their case. now the issue has been decided in great britain. they made a point of saying that they've got france and turkey with them. so i think what we're seeing is the beginning of the explanation of why they're going to go in -- >> they may have france and turkey's verbal support but i don't see any military hardware other than u.s. military hardware
families. >> three of the wives are here. dana symptom, married to web simpson and mark wilson's wife, amy is president of the pga wives association. may i just say the book is beautifully done. it includes recipes. some of my favorite stuff. i don't cook but i wanted to lick some of the pages. this is what's interesting. we are not ladies of lunch that go to the mall. we are very committed to the work that we do. you do say, we do do work. amy, you lead us off, please? >> this is the 25th anniversary of our association. we look with children and their families. between 15-20 weeks a year, we go into the local communities or we either do an event where we are hand's on or cooking at a ronald mcdonald house or gutting houses after hurricane katrina or raise awareness and money. we partnered with the avon foundation and did a walk to raise money for the fight against domestic violence. >> you are doing more than just looking pretty. >> for sure. >> in the process, you have raised $5 million for charity. >> tell me about the association itself, per se. beyond this, what does it do? what's its
. firefighters are getting a helping hand from the weather let's check in with dana. >> hi, shan n no, unfortunately we are dealing with dry, warm and gusty conditions that are not helping firefighters in this vulnerable area. 77 as your daytime high, but wind gusts 30 to 40 miles per hour and because this fire is so big it can be very erratic and actually create its own weather conditions and its own weather gusts, the gusts of wind. firefighters will have to be careful trying to contain this and the mountainous terrain. it is rough to get in there. on monday the winds calm down a little bit. but it is only 7% contained. we think it is going to be with us certainly for much of the workweek. shannon, take a look here. we have over 50 fires burning across the west including the latest in yosemite. we will track itment back to you. >> a tough situation. thank you very much. >>> a battle is brewing over the administration. planning to fund planned parenthood to help with obamacare. and a 72-year-old man suspected of going on a shooting rampage that left at least two people dead. what ma
that ft. leavenworth will do that. it looks like dana coombs will have to sue the army or petition on medical grounds to get bradley manning transferred to a federal prison where perhaps he could get that therapy because due to army and d.o.d. regulations, ft. leaven swort not going to give that hormone therapy much less sex reassignment surgery. carol? >> if he did get this treatment, this hormone replacement therapy, who would pay for it? >> it would be the government. it would be the taxpayers. that's the way it is for any prisoner. basically, if you're a prisoner, the state or the government is responsible for your medical care because you can't fund your own medical care. there have been some rulings in the past where federal courts have struck down laws in which some states try to prohibit these taxpayer-funded hormone therapy regimens. again, some of the courts have struck those down saying you can't do that. and some prisoners have been receiving hormone therapy. sexual reassignment surgery is still relatively new. that also has been looked on somewhat favorably by some of
